In 1984 (I was 6), Grandma and Grandpa took me and Heidi to Auto World in Flint, Michigan. I remember them laying the backseat down and making a bed for us in the back of the car so we could sleep while they drove in the wee hours of the morning... or so it seemed. It was only 2 hours away. The memory of this little indoor amusement park stuck with me. Every time I would wake up in the morning or the middle of the night, this memory would confirm that I was who I was - "I went to Auto World." Funny as it sounds, it still is a great memory with my Grandparents that I hope to never forget.
These last two photos are from my 7th birthday party - August 1985. I think it was a skating rink or party place like Showbiz, but not sure exactly. I do remember what a fun day it was!
